Time to Register for JulNoWriMo!


Regular readers of this blog will know all about National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo for short.

This event takes place every November, and I've mentioned it most years on my blog.

JulNoWriMo is a more recent innovation, started in 2006. Aimed at people for whom November isn't such a good month for writing - or for whom one monthly writing marathon a year just isn't enough - JulNoWriMo is a challenge to write a complete 50,000 word novel in July.

JulNoWriMo isn't (yet) nearly as big as NaNoWriMo, but it's getting more popular every year. This FAQ page is a good place to find out more. To sign up for JulNoWriMo, you simply have to visit their forum and register a username.

If you're looking for a challenge to kick-start your novel - and don't have too much else planned for July - JulNoWriMo could provide just the incentive you need. It is also, by the way, a great opportunity to apply the techniques taught in WCCL's Novel in a Month course, or indeed my own Write Any Book in Under 28 Days (see banner ad below).

I wish you every success if you do decide to register for JulNoWriMo and write a novel in July. Please do leave a comment below if you succeed in completing the challenge!

That's great! I wondered about the November month choice then read the founder's book and understood his reasons but July seems like a good substitute for those whose schedules will not allow for November!

Thanks, Rachel. Yes, I guess that July might be more feasible than November for quite a lot of people.
